    We are DVC members at BLT, OKW, and SSR; however, we are planning a trip to Disneyland in 1/2021. Can I go through DVC to obtain accommodations if I am NOT using my DVC points?

    Welcome to planDisney, Karri and from one Disney Vacation Club Member to another, let me say, "welcome home!"

    Karri, how exciting that you're planning a visit to the Happiest Place on Earth! While I haven't yet been able to channel my inner Avenger, I can barely wait to feel like a superhero in the newest land on the west coast!

    Karri, since you're hoping to book a cash stay at The Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, the best course of action is to call and speak with Member Services. It's possible that you will be able to book through your Membership however as inventory is constantly changing, the only way to know what's available is to call. For example, the first time I called to book a cash room through Disney Vacation Club, there was availability at Disney's Old Key West Resort. The most recent time I booked a cash room, the choices were Disney's Saratoga Spring Resort & Spa or Disney's Riviera Resort. When available, cash stays can be booked 11 months in advance, so if your travel dates are firm, I would call as soon as possible.

    Karri, I'll be wishing on a star for you that you're able to complete your reservation and will be walking in Walt's footsteps soon. If you have any other questions, please come on back to planDisney.
